What can I do with leftover hard-crack caramel?

After dunking creampuffs, I'm left with about 2.5 cups of slowly cooling caramel, in the hard-crack/light amber stage (probably got up to about 325º?) So what can I do with this? save it in jars to re-warm in a water bath? churn it into some kind of confection before it solidifies in my pan?

There’s a scene in the movie “Chef” where hard caramel was crushed into a dust and sprinkled on top of berries and whipped cream.

You could let it cool then crush it up and use it in Needless Markup Cookies (see my profile) or on the top of creme brulee cookies. Stir it into some granola....
